Challenge

The 6.8 magnitude earthquake severely hit the High Atlas region of Morocco. Communication with the teen girls affected is still challenging as critical infrastructure has been affected by the earthquake. Girls and women living in the affected areas are in urgent need of menstrual products, diapers and other essential first aid needs.

Solution

As menstruation does not stop during natural disasters, all donations raised through this fund will support women and girls with menstrual products diapers and other essential first aid needs.

Long-Term Impact

Women and girls are extremely impacted by natural disasters as basic needs such as menstrual products are often forgotten. Needs change and evolve day after day in natural disasters like earthquakes, but menstruation does not stop and menstrual products are constantly needed items both in the short and long term.
